I forgot my English grammar book at home.
I read that forget something somewhere is incorrect? We should not use forget when we mention place. We should use leave instead. Do native speakers follow this rule?
I couldn't remember where I read it when I made my post yesterday. I recall it now and it's Advanced Oxford Learner's Dictionary.

But "I forgot my book at home" is not common usage.
"I forgot my book", "I left my book at home" are common. Of course, they have potentially different meanings, because there is nothing in the second sentence to indicate that you didn't do it on purpose.
You could say. "I forgot to bring my book; it's at home", or any combination of similar sentences.
Thanks a lot, 2006.
Maybe, all native speakers don't follow it after all.
But we can't ignore the fact that he is a native speaker, can we? I think views of other native speakers would be helpful.
